Ludmila Rodrigues creates spaces, situations and devices in order to make the public move. Her fascination relies on the embodied knowledge inherent to us all, thus, on the presence of the audience. How can the audience be engaged? How do they relate to each other? Can we share movement and synchronize our actions producing a bigger movement?
Ludmila was born in Rio, Brazil, and is based in The Hague since 2009. With a degree in Architecture and a second degree in Artscience at the KABK (Royal Academy of Art, The Hague), she is now researching on Haptics (tactile communication) and she reports her findings in the blog: sharingmotions.wordpress.com
By using light materials, such as elastics, ropes and wood, Ludmila creates sets in which visitors start playing, as if dancing with each other, connected by the structure that augments and reflects their interactions.
The presentation happened on Sunday, december 1st at the CLOUD/Danslab Studio.
